Taylor Long is a 20-something Brooklynite with the attitude to match, so it’s no surprise that criticism comes naturally to her. She’s originally from Seattle, but the only remnant of that time in her life is a love for Seattle sports (Mariners! Seahawks!) and mild weather. She moved to New York to attend Hofstra University, where she studied Print Journalism and Music and realized six years later that a Journalism degree is practically useless. Nonetheless, she hopes to one day be one of the most well-known music journalists, which could be a problem considering that whole being a woman in a man’s industry thing, but she’s hoping her androgynous name will help her out some there.
In her spare time — wait, what spare time? If she had all the time in the world, she’d spend it writing about and listening to music more than she already does, catching up on her months’ worth of TiVo, catching up on her dozens of unread books, catching up on her absurdly long Netflix queue, actually returning her friends’ messages, beating up the Mariners’ front office, taking pictures, traveling, and maybe sleeping. Wait, what’s sleep?
